1. Keeping it Simple
We know there is nothing simple about getting a gypsy tattoo. All the complex designs, details, and perfect imitation of an actual face and not a cartoon-ish one mean that gypsy tattoos are complicated. It requires so much talent and extensive practice to be able to pull off a proper gypsy tattoo. By simple, we only mean the colors – keeping it black and white…because as you can see later, a fully colored one will totally blow your mind.
It may only be black but look at the details on this one – the shading, the shadows, the lines, and proportions, the curves and everything in this gypsy tattoo is just incredible. Wear it proudly on your arm.
Another great location for a monochrome gypsy tattoo is the thighs. You can go crazy with its size and consequently can put so much design that you want to add. For example in this one, you have the beautiful face of a woman but still you can put huge flowers. If you wish for a tat as elaborate as this or even more, this is area where you want it to be.
But of course, another obvious strategic location for big amazing tattoos are the back. The surface makes it a lesser hassle for the artist as well since there are no immediate curves and edges. All is great but just watch out for the pain. Yikes!
4. …and Your Favorite Things
What is even more amazing than having a beautiful gypsy tattoo? Well, it is incorporating the things you love best into it! It is expressive and subtle and very artistic at the same time. It is a very cool way for self expression in an abstract and symbolic way. What things are you fond of? Or known to be so much into about?
Are you split between the make up enthusiast and the tough inked girl? That does not always have to be a problem, nor is it polar ends of a situation that cannot be altogether expressed. After all make up and tattoos are both art. Both require skills in drawing lines, creating shadows, doing the right shading, mixing up the right colors, and so on. Wear your emblem proudly as a lover for make up or for all things girly and merge it up with your love for tats!
